Volume 46 - No. 11

As unwarranted as it may seem, some have viewed him as something of a cult hero; to mainstream society and established law enforcement, he remains a notorious bank villain, considered armed and dangerous. Going on five years now, his status with the FBI remains the same: a fugitive at large who has stifled all attempts to capture him. The FBI has bestowed upon him a unique name that would become nationally known, “The Geezer Bandit,” and he is, without question, the most infamous bank robber in San Diego County history.
The Geezer Bandit’s notoriety refused to be restrained within the limits of San Diego County when he stopped being just a local news story and suddenly plunged into the national media limelight. Never before has a San Diego senior citizen, who robs banks for a living, captured the fascination of a national audience on primetime television. On February 5, 2011, the popular weekly television show, “America’s Most Wanted,” placed the Geezer Bandit center stage as one of the FBI’s most wanted criminals in America. Overnight, the Geezer Bandit became a national topic of intrigue, the subject of animated discussions around the water coolers at work, or even the center of a heated debate at a sports bar or other eatery, and not just here in Southern California but, as far away as New York, Florida, North Dakota, South Carolina and all points in between. No San Diego County bank bandit in recorded history has ever achieved such wide-spread infamy; not even a close second shows up as a blip on the radar screen. What keeps driving the public interest and fascination over the geriatric bank robber are the wide-ranging venues which, surprisingly, keep his name alive even on late night talk shows. On television’s “Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” host, Ferguson, took humorous stabs at the Geezer Bandit phenomenon: “Police in San Diego are looking for a 78-year-old bank robber. How are you looking for someone and you already know his exact age?” Ferguson didn’t let up, “Police have nicknamed the robber the “Geezer Bandit.” They describe him as “armed and flatulent.” And finally, “Victims of the Geezer Bandit’s last robbery say he threatened to tell them stories of his grandkids.” Jay Leno and other television show hosts also took comedic swipes at San Diego’s Geezer Bandit, as well. Such humor flies in the face of law enforcement agencies, who do not find anything to joke about regarding their attempts to apprehend a most dangerous fugitive still at large.
Also driving the controversy and fanning the flames of fascination are mysterious unknowns and missing pieces to a most elusive and seductive puzzle. For example, John Walsh, host of “America’s Most Wanted,” told a national television viewing audience that he believes the Geezer
The Paper - 760.747.7119
Bandit to actually be a much younger person in brilliant disguise who has managed to fool and elude the finest minds in law enforcement. If Walsh’s early speculation proves correct, it may provide a crucial key in solving a string of sixteen consecutive bank robberies that have successfully stifled both the police and the FBI. Leaving no stone unturned, the theory of the Geezer Bandit actually being a master of disguise is a serious consideration. The FBI officially describes the Geezer Bandit as follows: white male, approximately 60-70 years old, 5’ 10” to 6’ tall, 190 to 200 lbs, average build. Aside from this description, the FBI lists this notable attachment: “Possibly wearing a synthetic mask and gloves to hide true physical characteristics.” He is also believed to be left-handed. Is it a ‘reasonable’ theory, in the case of the Geezer Bandit, that such an old-man disguise, such as a face mask, can be so realistic as to avoid suspicion, even at a close distance? This is perhaps unlikely at the normal Halloween outlet, but what about at the high-end level, such as
at a highly professional Hollywood-quality disguise-and-mask store? In researching this article, I decided to go online to view some of the most professional and realistic face masks in the world and found myself believing that, yes, this could in fact be a real-life possibility in regards to the Geezer Bandit.
The masks I saw were on a Hollywood professional level that blurred the line between the real and unreal. One company is called SPFX Masks (www.spfxmasks.com/), now a Division of Hollywood Mask Masters, and they offer a variety of the most realistic old-man masks I have ever seen, under a variety of different names, such as “The Elder,” “The Senior Citizen,” “The Retiree,” and believe it or not, “The Geezer,” all priced at nearly $800 each. Interestingly, all the aforementioned masks look almost identical to the photos of the Geezer Bandit that were captured on bank surveillance cameras. On May 27, 2011, after the Geezer Bandit held up the Heritage Oaks Bank, at 310 Morro Bay Blvd., in Morro Bay, California, Morro Bay police detectives
‘The Geezer Bandit’ Continued on Page 2
scrambled with intent to serve a search warrant on SPFX Masks, Inc. (mentioned above) to reveal all names and personal information of customers who had purchased silicon masks, such as “The Elder,” “The Geezer,” and “The Senior Citizen,” to cite just a few examples. According to Rusty Slusser, owner of SPFX Masks Inc., he has sold about a hundred masks called, “The Elder.” As such, Slusser has kept an open dialogue with various investigators, including the Morro Bay Police Department, San Diego police detectives and, of course, the FBI. It is already well documented that SPFX Masks, Inc. sold a realistic face mask called “The Player,” in April of 2010, to a man in Ohio who used it to rob a bank there. There is an added twist to this story. The mask is of an African-American, and the white Ohio robber who bought it online from SPFX Masks (headquartered in Van Nuys, California) used it to throw police off his trail. And it worked. The only clue that led to the robber’s arrest was that his Volvo car interior was splattered with red dye from a dye-pack that was secretly slipped into the bag containing the

stolen money. A bank dye-pack acts as a security device and is a thin square package hidden inside a stack of bills. When the dye-pack explodes, it sprays a red chemical in all directions, staining everything it comes in contact with, including human skin. The dye-pack explosion and a tip led Springdale, Ohio police to arrest Conrad Zerdiak, a thirty-year-old white male. The mask he used was so realistic that it stunned police Lieutenant Michael Mathis who said, “It was a twist. I’ve been doing this for almost 25 years now and I’ve never seen anything as lifelike and realistic as the kind of mask (Zerdiak) was wearing.” Zerdiak pleaded guilty to six Ohio robberies. Fortunately, the police released an innocent black man who was wrongly identified as the holdup man. The mask was so realistic that at Conrad Zerdiak’s court appearance, Hamilton County Municipal Court Judge, Melissa Powers, told Zerdiak, “You are the type of villain we read about in novels and see in the movies.”
Such realism in face masks has forced many segments of law enforcement to re-orientate themselves to a new hightech disguise that challenges them on a more sophisticated level. Recently, the FBI has begun a campaign in questioning makers of professional life-like face masks in their attempts to gain a fresh look into San Diego’s Geezer Bandit. A precedence for criminals employing this type of new realism in face masks has already been established. In Hong Kong, a young Asian man wearing a realistic theatrical mask bordered a plane to Canada. His realistic-looking high-tech silicon mask made him appear as an elderly white male when he disembarked the plane. His appearance successfully

One Sunday morning, a mother went in to wake her son and tell him it was time to get ready for church, to which he replied, "I'm not going." "Why not?" she asked.
I'll give you two good reasons," he said. "(1), they don't like me, and (2), I don't like them."
His mother replied, "I'll give you two good reasons why you SHOULD go to church: (1) You're 59 years old, and (2) you're the pastor!" ••••• The Picnic

evaded all airport security, whose keen observation failed to notice him wearing a face mask as a disguise.
Is it possible that San Diego County’s Geezer Bandit may also fall into this same category? The latest evidence now strongly suggests this as a very real possibility. In the Geezer Bandit’s last recorded bank heist in San Luis Obispo, California (one of his five bank robberies outside of San Diego County), a very strange and baffling scenario unfolded. In the Geezer Bandit’s previous string of fifteen bank holdups, he experienced no problems in making his escape. But in San Luis Obispo, things would be radically different – he would face a trap for the very first time. On Friday, December 2, 2011, the Geezer Bandit arrived at Bank of America, located at 1105 Higuera Street, in San Luis Obispo. At about 5:39 p.m., the Geezer Bandit walked into the bank carrying a leather day-planner, or notebook, tucked under his right arm. He also openly held documents in his hand to present the impression that he was about to conduct some legitimate banking transactions. When his time came, he calmly walked towards a female teller, and placed his day-planner on her counter. The Geezer Bandit then handed her a holdup note demanding money, which he also stated to her, verbally. During all of this, he slowly opened the day-planner and removed a handgun and white plastic bag. A teller’s worst nightmare unfolded before her eyes as the elderly bank robber pointed his deadly weapon at her, point blank range, and threatened to kill her, on the spot, if she did not obey. Obviously nervous and shaken, the teller complied as instructed in such scenarios. The senior citizen bandit then replaced the handgun in his day-planner and walked out of the bank towards the parking lot. What was about to happen
banter. "This baked ham is really delicious," the priest teased the rabbi. "You really ought to try it. I know it's against your religion, but I can't understand why such a wonderful food should be forbidden! You don't know what you're missing. You just haven't lived until you've tried Mrs. Hall's prized Virginia Baked Ham. Tell me, Rabbi, when are you going to break down and try it?" The rabbi looked at the priest with a big grin, and said, "At your wedding." ••••• The Usher
An elderly woman walked into the local country church. The friendly usher greeted her at the door and helped her up the flight of steps. "Where would you like to sit?" he asked politely. "The front row, please," she answered.
"You really don't want to do that," the usher said. "The pastor is really boring."
"Do you happen to know who I am?" the woman inquired. "No," he said.
"I'm the pastor's mother," she replied indignantly.
in the next few seconds would be so shocking and so unexpected that it would – to this day – remain both a mystery and frustration to both the police and the FBI. It was also the worst conceivable living nightmare for the socalled Geezer Bandit. Soon after exiting the bank and walking towards the parking lot, the bank’s security dye-pack which was secretly hidden within the stolen cash, suddenly, exploded! The concussion alone should have disabled any frail elderly man (the Geezer Bandit’s age has been assessed, from some sources, to be in the mid to high 70s). What the bank’s surveillance cameras showed next was a most unreal, even wicked, image of a notorious villain covered in smoke and red dye from the exploded dye-pack, knocked partially to the ground. With the reflexes and strength of a much younger man, the Geezer Bandit was only briefly shaken by the sudden explosion-concussion. Regaining his physical composure he made a quick attempt to pick up some of the scattered cash as well as his personal belongings. What followed next was not to be believed, and yet the Bank of America surveillance cameras confirmed what took place. The Geezer Bandit quickly sprinted across the parking lot at a speed that would be considered abnormally fast for any elderly man, especially as old as he is made to look in various bank robbery photos. Though it is true that many seniors in good shape can run marathons and even sprints, the bank robbery photos of the Geezer Bandit, clearly, reveal a more decrepit, aged individual, perhaps even frail. Could the Geezer Bandit, in actuality, be a master of disguise and wearing a realistic-looking mask? It is certainly a new perspective in light of what the FBI witnessed on the Bank of America surveillance cameras. The aftermath was
"Do you know who I am?" he asked. "No," she said.
"Good," he answered. ••••• Show and Tell
A kindergarten teacher gave her class a "show and tell" assignment.
Each student was instructed to bring in an object that represented their religion to share with the class.
The first student got up in front of the class and said, "My name is Benjamin and I am Jewish and this is a Star of David."
The second student got up in front of the class and said, "My name is Mary. I'm a Catholic and this is a Rosary." The third student got in up front of the class and said, "My name is Tommy. I am Methodist, and this is a casserole." ••••• The Best Way To Pray
A priest, a minister and a guru sat discussing the best positions for prayer, while a telephone repairman worked nearby. "Kneeling is definitely the best way to pray," the
cash (much of it colored in red dye) scattered all over the bank parking lot and adjacent parking areas, as well. Witnesses to this whole carnival-like setting reported seeing a white BMW, possibly a 5-Series, speed out of the vicinity nearby.
The San Luis Obispo bank holdup by the Geezer Bandit was even chronicled on CBS News when the newscast told nationwide viewers of the continuing exploits of California’s infamous bank bandit and reported that the police had recovered what they believe is the Geezer Bandit’s notebook. The notebook is undergoing forensic examination and testing for DNA and fingerprints. According to a statement from FBI spokeswoman, Laura Eimiller, the speed at which the alleged Geezer Bandit sprinted did not match his appearance of a man aged 60 to 70 years old. When ABC News filed a report inquiring into the incident, San Luis Obispo Police Lieutenant, Bill Proll, told ABC News, “There’s quite a bit of money in the parking lot and it’s spread out across several different parking stalls, so we’re not sure if he got away with any money or not.” (According to the FBI, bank robbers average about $7,500 in cash without complications, such as in a dye-pack explosion.) Aside from fingerprint clues, etc., that may be gathered from the Geezer Bandit’s day-planner that he left behind, there was also cash which he dropped from his hand, which may also have additional fingerprints. In regards to the bank dye-pack exploding in San Luis Obispo, San Diego’s own FBI Special Agent, James Stinnett, marvels at the Geezer Bandit’s percentage-

"No," said the minister. "I get the best results standing with my hands outstretched to Heaven." "You're both wrong," the guru said. "The most effective prayer position is lying down on the floor." The repairman could contain himself no longer. "Hey, fellas," he interrupted. "The best prayin' I ever did was when I was hangin' upside down from a telephone pole." ••••• The Twenty and the One A well-worn one-dollar bill and a similarly distressed twentydollar bill arrived at a Federal Reserve Bank to be retired. As they moved along the conveyor belt to be burned, they struck up a conversation.
The twenty-dollar bill reminisced about its travels all over the country. "I've had a pretty good life," the twenty proclaimed. "Why I've been to Las Vegas and Atlantic City, the finest restaurants in New York, performances on Broadway, and even a cruise to the Caribbean ."

rate at being lucky. “He’s the luckiest person I know,” Stinnett has been quoted as saying. “The fact that he’s only received the one security device (dye pack) out of 16 robberies is phenomenal!” How lucky is the Geezer Bandit in beating the odds? “He more than likely, nine out of ten times, would have got caught,” Stinnett would reply. All in all, San Diego County’s infamous Geezer Bandit seems to be a human chameleon, capable of change, shape, and appearance which allows him to be perceived in a variety of different ways by different sources and people. After exiting banks he just, simply, seems to vanish into thin air without any significant trail of eyewitness accounts.
Throughout his sixteen consecutive bank robberies (eleven in San Diego County) there were various unknowns left in his wake, leaving frustration at every turn. Then, it happened. Another twist in the already-deep murky waters that mysteriously swirled around the Geezer Bandit, emerged. A new line of thinking can sometimes throw the ‘overalls in the chowder’ and further complicate the ongoing investigation, or it can help. In any regard, a startling and most bizarre possibility emerged which, at the onset, was never even considered -- until now. The police and FBI are now investigating the theory that the Geezer Bandit may not only be much, much younger in years, but they are now exploring the remote possibility that the Geezer Bandit is -- like a shocking twist in a Hollywood movie -- not a young man at all, but a young woman, in brilliant disguise! What has fueled this theory in regards to the Geezer Bandit’s real gender is his slight build. As one source put it, “Given the Geezer Bandit’s small size and physical stature, the Geezer may catch everyone by surprise by turning out to be a woman.” Also, it has come to light that statements gathered by the FBI say that his deeply-wrinkled face looks unnatural, up close, as if it were a latex mask of some sort and, underneath this suspected mask, his voice sounds distinctly younger in years than his appearance. It may be the higher-range voice of a woman. The elaborate ruse of the Geezer Bandit not only being disguised as an old man to hide his youth, but, to

also mask his gender as a young woman is, certainly, not too theatrically farfetched for him (or her). After all, the Geezer Bandit has already employed farfetched props to further complicate his disguises. For instance, he has been photographed carrying such elaborate props as an oxygen tank, complete with oxygen hoses connected to his nostrils. Stranger things in the past annals of criminology have taught law enforcement sleuths to sometimes expect the most unexpected, and to dare to explore all possibilities, regardless of how unlikely they may seem.
There is a tremendous amount of curiosity and speculation regarding the age and, now, even the gender, of San Diego County’s Geezer Bandit. Sifting through reams of gathered evidence, investigators are getting a glimpse of his behavior and patterns. In every robbery committed, the Geezer Bandit wears some sort of head wear, such as a baseball cap. He usually wears a sports jacket and slacks, however, he once wore a blue jogging outfit, complete with white tennis shoes, and white baseball cap. On November 12, 2010 in Bakersfield, California, he robbed the Bank of America sporting a white fedora with a contrasting black hat band.
Upon closer inspection, something very interesting was noticed by some of the bank tellers that he held up at gun point. Documenting what various bank tellers have revealed, a few have described his hand skin as appearing as though they had makeup applied. He often wore plastic gloves, but why apply hand makeup? A tiny clue sometimes can unravel a big mystery. Perhaps adding to his physical description would be a hand scar, a tattoo, or distinct age spots, all of which might assist investigators in identifying him. It is equally fascinating that in most cases the tellers are convinced that he is an old man. But then, again, something very critical surfaced, from a very attentive bank teller at a Bank of America branch, in Bakersfield, who seemed extremely well-focused, despite the traumatic ordeal, on his facial details. The bank teller told FBI agents that she was absolutely, 100% positive – that the Geezer Bandit was wearing some sort of very, high-quality mask. Investigating further, the FBI has gathered various

statements from other witnesses that seem to corroborate the mask theory, “Something didn’t look normal, it wasn’t a normal face,” was one deposition statement. “He came in, requested money and passed a note and said, ‘If you don’t obey, I will murder you and everyone else in the bank.” Investigating the appearance of very expensive movie-making masks, such as can be found online, FBI investigators acknowledge that such realistic silicon face masks can easily pass for ‘the real thing,’ as already cited in this exclusive article.
The ongoing notoriety of the Geezer Bandit has generated a cult-following on the internet and even generated a variety of t-shirts. On “America’s Most Wanted,” one fan-created a t-shirt that read: “Geezer Bandit is my name, Gettin’ Away is my game.” Even several Facebook pages show support for the geriatric bandit and there seems to be no end in sight. At last count, the Geezer Bandit has almost 12,000 Facebook fans!
Such expressions of support for the Geezer Bandit have, of course, created a backlash from the general public, as well as law enforcement agencies. “It’s really pretty dumb,” FBI Agent Keith Slotter says, “He’s extremely threatening. He’s had a weapon in most of his robberies. So this is no laughing matter.” One teller who was robbed by the Geezer Bandit expressed her feelings, “There’s nothing funny about it, at all. He’s a very mean, despicable man who has no regard for who he points a gun at.” And on “America’s Most Wanted” television show, one of the tellers who had direct contact with the Geezer Bandit bluntly said she was given a note that read, “Give me $50,000 or I will murder you.” As can be expected, the Geezer Bandit has had several copycat bank robbers who are, initially, suspected of being San Diego’s infamous Geezer Bandit. However, when the FBI’s forensic scientists and other highly-trained experts view the facts, they quickly weed out the imitators.
Pattern-wise, of all the sixteen banks the Geezer Bandit has held up, all but five were in San Diego County. Of these banks, he has robbed Bank of America the most (7 robberies, different branches), with U.S. Bank second (4 robberies,

different branches). The banks in San Diego County that he has successfully robbed extend from: Santee, San Diego, La Jolla, Poway, Vista, and Rancho Santa Fe. The farthest north he has traveled outside of San Diego County to rob a bank is at Bakersfield, California. Of the various San Diego County cities, he has robbed La Jolla the most (3 times, 3 different banks). Region-wise, within San Diego County, the Geezer Bandit favored cities north of San Diego proper, such as: La Jolla, Carmel Mountain, Rancho Santa Fe, Vista, and Poway, hitting these areas eight out of his sixteen total holdups. It is truly amazing how an (alleged) senior citizen was able to successfully rob 16 consecutive banks in broad daylight (in the company of other customers), exit the banks each time and then, suddenly and successfully, disappear. Even after the explosion of a bank dye-pack. The entire legacy of the Geezer Bandit continues to spark curiosity and speculation as to what may have happened to him since he was almost captured at San Luis Obispo. From that day onward, his bank robberies stopped altogether. Many theories have surfaced. Could he have died? That’s certainly possible. Could he still be robbing banks under a different disguise and in a different city or state? Likewise, that is also possible. Or he may already be in jail or prison for a variety of unrelated charges that don’t link him as the Geezer Bandit.
What is intriguing is that many people actually know the Geezer Bandit, or at least know the person behind that title. He obviously was not hatched from an egg, so he has some family, perhaps even an ex-spouse, and acquaintances, people who were once employed with him, went to school with him, perhaps in another state, perhaps here. And in regards to San Diego County, countless people had interactions with him – they just didn’t know he was the bank fugitive, still at large. He obviously shops for groceries, has neighbors, and acquaintances who acknowledge him with perhaps a “Hi” or “How’s it going?” salutation. If he should ever be caught,

The battle for two seats on Vista’s City Council has already begun.
There will also be two DUI checkpoints in the following cities later this month:
Incumbent Councilmembers Cody Campbell and Amanda Rigby resumably are running. Dale Pilat, Tom Flemiong, Victoria Waufle, and Joe Green have confirmed their candidacy. Campbell said he’ll announce his intentions later.
Watch for increased DUI patrols by deputies across the county on Thursday, March 17th starting at 7:00 p.m. and lasting through 3:00 a.m. the following day.
Friday, March 18th ‐ San Marcos
St. Patrick's Day has become a dangerous time because of people who decide to drink and drive.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), impaired driving kills more than 10,000 people every year in the United States. The sad fact is that every single one of these deaths is preventable.
The Sheriff's Department is committed to keeping San Diego's roadways safe from impaired drivers. If you get She does a good job with the Escondido Union School District. She deserves the job with the Board of Educationm, District 4.
At least seven people, including both council incumbents, have filed paperwork stating their intent to run for a four-year council term.
Former council member Frank Lopez filed paperwork last year stating he intended to pursue a seat in the coming election. However, he has not filed a campaign financial disclosure statement since July, and he did not return calls this week seeking comment.
The eighth potential candidate, Michael Nucci, filed his intent-to-run paperwork last year, but his campaign consultant said this week that Nucci has decided against pursing a seat this election cycle. himself. As though I would know who he ws. I thought, “wonder what this guy is selling.” (We newspaper types tend to be the skeptical sort.) But, no! It was Mitchel Katz of the FTC! (Federal Trade Commission). He had called to say my complaint has been heard and they, the FTC, had brought a legal action against the (allegedly) yellow-bellied, supercilious, rotund, pus-filled piece of ectoplasm that caused these robocalls to be placed and then sold the leads to solar companies.
I’ll be casting my vote for her and suggest you do as well. The Paper will endorse Paulette Donnellon for this position. ••••• It pays to bitch. Eventually.
About two years ago I filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). I was being besieged by those damned robocalls telling me how urgent it was that I get some information pronto on solar panels and how, if I didn’t, I was headed for the poorhouse because of all the money I was not saving by going solar. Last Thursday morning I got a call from Mithcell Katz in Washington, D. C. That’s how he identified
The FTC said the defendant “bombarded consumers with millions of unwanted illegal recorded calls.” Further, they say, these (alleged) nincompoops were calling from the “Do Not Call Registry,” ignoring the legal requirement totally. Imagine that. Breaking the law.
Defendants Bombarded Consumers with Millions of Unwanted Illegal Recorded Calls so says the headline of the press release I later received. The Federal Trade Commission has brought a federal court action to stop a telemarketing operation that allegedly made illegal robocalls promising consumers energy savings, in an effort to generate leads to sell to solar panel installation companies.

"Wow!" said the one-dollar bill. "You've really had an exciting life!"
"So, tell me," says the twenty, "where have you been throughout your lifetime?" The one dollar bill replies, "Oh, I've been to the Methodist Church, the Baptist Church, the Lutheran Church."
The twenty-dollar bill interrupts, "What's a church?" ••••• Goat for Dinner The young couple invited their elderly pastor for Sunday dinner. While they were in the kitchen preparing the meal, the minister asked their son what they were having. "Goat," the little boy replied.
"Goat?" replied the startled man of the cloth, "Are you sure about that?"
"Yep," said the youngster. "I heard Dad say to Mom, 'Today is just as good as any to have the old goat for dinner.' " ••••• All arrivals in heaven have to go through a bureaucratic examination to determine whether admission will be granted. One room has a clerk who inputs computerized records of what each applicant did on his or her last day of life. The first applicant of the day explained that his last day was not a good one. "I came home early and found my wife lying naked in bed. She claimed she had just gotten out of the shower. "Well, her hair was dry, so I checked the shower and it was completely dry too. I knew she was into some hanky-panky, and I began to look for her lover. I went onto the balcony of our 9th floor apartment and found the SOB clinging to the rail by his finger tips. I was so angry that I began bashing his fingers with a flower pot. He let go and fell, but his fall was broken by some awnings and bushes. On seeing he was still alive I found super human strength to drag our antique cedar chest to the balcony and throw it over. It hit the man and killed him. At this point the stress got to me, and I suffered a massive heart attack and died." The clerk thanked him and sent him on to the next office. The second applicant said that his last day was his worst. "I was on the roof of an apartment building working on the AC equipment. I stumbled over my tools and toppled off the building. I managed to grab onto the balcony rail of a 9th floor apartment, but some idiot came rushing out on the balcony and
bashed my hands with a flower pot. I fell but hit some awnings and bushes and survived, but as I looked up I saw a huge chest falling toward me. I tried to crawl out of the way but failed and was hit and killed by the chest." The clerk couldn't help but chuckle as he directed the man to the next room. He was still giggling when his third customer of the day entered. He apologized and said, "I doubt that your last day was as interesting as the fellow in here just before you."
"I don't know," replied the man, "picture this, I'm buck naked hiding in this cedar chest." ••••• I don't usually pass on sad news like this, but sometimes we need to pause and remember what life is all about. There was a great loss recently. Larry LaPrise, who wrote the song "Hokey Pokey," died this past week at age 83.
It was extremely difficult for the family to keep him in the casket. They'd put his left leg in and... well, you know the rest... ••••• A prominent surgeon, who was a member of operating teams at both St. Francis Hospital and Christ Hospital in the Chicago area, would operate in the morning, then field calls about his patients in the evening. One night, a few dinner guests were quite shocked as the good doctor was on the phone talking to a resident at Christ Hospital, when the other phone rang. His wife answered, then whispered to her husband, "It's St. Francis calling." He whispered back, "Tell St. Francis I'll have to call back. I'm talking to Christ." ••••• It has already started at Turner Outdoorsman in Escondido.
When I was ready to pay for my purchases of gun powder and bullets, the cashier said, "Strip down, facing me."
Making a mental note to complain to the NRA about the gun control wackos running amok, I did just as she had instructed. When the hysterical shrieking and alarms finally subsided, I found out that she was referring to how I should place my credit card in the card-reader. I have been asked to shop elsewhere in the future.
They need to make their instructions to us seniors a little clearer I still don't think I looked that bad.

you can bet your bottom dollar that scores of people who know him will come forth in shock and amazement.
Whether he wears a face mask or other form of disguise, it seems probable that the Geezer Bandit may not really look like all those very clear photos of him that have been captured by all those bank surveillance cameras. Because if he does look exactly as portrayed in those security camera photos, then it would be almost certain that a close friend, ex-coworker, grocery store clerk, neighbor – someone – would recognize his distinctive face. It seems most odd that the countless people that he may interact with, do not recognize or become suspicious of any similarity that would initiate a call to police. Even investigators on the case are bewildered at how this can be so. San Diego FBI Special Agent, Darrell Foxworth, commented on this, “Look at his physical characteristics, his clothing, his posture, the way he walks. All we need is that one phone call to provide the last piece of the puzzle to this case.” It is unfathomable how such an individual who, obviously, has ties to the community, somewhere, cannot be recognized by the general public (unless he is wearing a silicon mask). As FBI Special Agent, Foxworth, puts it, “We strongly believe that there’s someone out there that knows this guy, and they just haven’t called yet.” It would be a very lucrative phone call by any member of the public. The reward for any information leading to the arrest of the Geezer Bandit is a hefty $20,000.
No other San Diego bank robber has had such high profile awareness as the Geezer Bandit. Every major television network and most major newspapers,
Should we end daylight saving time?
Falling back and springing forward has become a biannual tradition for most Americans. We often do this without much thought; it’s become a ritual that marks the changing seasons. In fact, many look forward to the additional sunshine daylight time seems to generate at the end of the day during the spring and summer months. As you may know, there is a growing movement in the United States to do away with daylight saving time. In California, Assemblyman Kansen Chu, D – San Jose, has introduced AB 2496. The bill seeks to repeal Proposition 12, which created statewide daylight time when it was passed by voters in 1949.
Daylight saving time has a long history. Standard time in recognized time zones was not established by law until passage of the Standard Time Act during World War I. The act also established daylight time as a wartime measure that was supposed
from north to south, east to west, have at one time or another, mentioned him, complete with photos. When he held up a Bank of America branch in Temecula, California, just 33 miles north of Escondido, the New York Daily News picked up on the story 3,000 miles away, and across four time-zones, proclaiming, “Geezer bandit strikes again! Elderly robber pulls off 11th California bank heist,” followed by a lengthy storyline. And when he robbed Bank of America in Santee, California, Fox News 5 weighed into the action with, “Geezer Bandit gets away with 9th robbery!” There has never been a media-alert shortage regarding San Diego’s Geezer Bandit. CBS Television8 fed the hungry public more tidbits of information to appease their appetites, “The Many Mysteries Surrounding the Geezer Bandit,” was their introduction line. Such free coast-to-coast media coverage is a veritable dream-come-true for law enforcement agencies, nationwide, which often have to fight an uphill battle in trying to get word out for public assistance. It is most remarkable, as stated by FBI Special Agent, Darrel Foxworth, that no one has yet come forth with some recognition of San Diego’s Geezer Bandit. The Geezer Bandit, like a lightening rod, has attracted not only major primetime TV news segments and television Specials, and ink from major newspapers across the length and breadth of America but, he has captured the fascination and focus of a public that, to this very day, is still immersed in a hot, ongoing debate and animated speculation as to his true identity – including gender -as well as his current whereabouts.

to help save energy, a claim that has now been called into question by some studies.
The nation’s first experiment with daylight saving time ended when it was repealed in 1919. With the outbreak of World War II, daylight saving time was reinstated, but its observance was left up to states and localities once the war was over. This created a hodgepodge of local time observances, which led Congress to pass the Uniform Time Act in 1966. The Act provided for nationwide standardized starting and ending dates for daylight time, with exemptions allowing states like Arizona and Hawaii (and now maybe California) to opt out.

28, 2009, when he robbed his very first San Diego County bank, the U.S. Bank in Santee, California, almost seven years ago, FBI Special Agent, Darrell Foxworth, has chased after the elusive Geezer Bandit. Sadly, he remains a free criminal, a menace to society who has terrorized and traumatized normal lawabiding citizens simply doing their jobs. One thing is very probable. Very little gets past the Geezer Bandit and there is a more-than-average chance that he is reading this very article that you are reading right now. Probably not, if there were only a few lines about him buried in the back pages of a newspaper. But a full-color front page cover story on the Geezer Bandit, with a shelf life of one week? Trust me, a week-long splash of news such as this will find its way for him to view, especially now when such a story pops up in a barren wasteland where nothing new about him has recently been published. This story will stick out like a sore thumb. Somewhere, sometime, he will be reading this. To believe otherwise would be the innocent and defenseless domain of the naive, the fertile ground he once exploited at gun point as the Geezer Bandit.
I wish to publicly thank all facets of law enforcement for being media-friendly in providing helpful information and in assisting the need for greater public awareness in the areas of crimes committed daily in our communities as well as across our nation. As advised by all law enforcement agencies, both local and federal, never intercede in any dangerous confrontation during a crime-inprogress. Instead, report all such occurrences to your local police department. I wish to express special thanks to the FBI for their commitment and valor in helping us all live better, safer, and peaceful lives.

According to the complaint, defendants Francisco Salvat and his companies placed more than 1.3 million illegal pre-recorded telemarketing calls to consumers with phone numbers on the Do Not Call Registry. The defendants allegedly claimed to be attempting to help consumers with their energy costs. According to the complaint, the defendants’ prerecorded calls made statements such as: “This is an urgent call about your energy bill,” and “stop the 14% increase coming soon.” Consumers were told to “push one” to lower their electric bill. Those who did were transferred to a telemarketer who asked if the consumer was interested in solar panels. If the consumer said yes, the telemarketer scheduled an appointment with a private solar installation company and sold the consumer’s information to that company as a customer lead. When consumers asked the defendants not to call them again, the FTC alleges their requests were often ignored. Based on this conduct, the FTC charged the defendants with violating the Telemarketing Sales Rule by: 1) calling consumers whose numbers are on the DNC Registry; 2) continuing to call consumers who had previously asked not to be called; 3) failing to transmit accurate caller-ID information; and 4) making illegal robocalls. The FTC is seeking a federal court order permanently barring the defendants from the illegal conduct, as well as civil penalties for their telemarketing violations.
The Commission vote to authorize the staff to refer the civil penalty complaint to the U.S. Department of Justice was 4-0. The Department of Justice filed the complaint on behalf of the Commission in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against defendants: KFJ Marketing, LLC; Sunlight Solar Leads, LLC; Go Green Education; and Francisco J. Salvat, individually and as an officer of each of the three businesses. I thanked Mr. Katz for his prompt response to my complaint (two years) and blessed his heart. I then told him I had a new assignment.
“I’d like you to have a talk with these gilliewet-footed, fustoodling, klazomaniacal, loiter-sacks (allegedly) who call and represent themselves as the “IRS” and say if you don’t wire them some money right away they’ll sue your backside off.”

‘You Can Be SURE if it’s Westinghouse’
During the last half of the 19th century, and the first 70 years of the 20th century, the home products carrying the “Westinghouse” label was a household name millions of consumers in industry and the general public depended upon.
George Westinghouse, Jr., born Oct. 6, 1846, was an American entrepreneur and engineer who invented the railway air brake and was a pioneer of the electrical industry, gaining his first patent at the age of 22.
Westinghouse was one of Thomas Edison's main rivals in the early implementation of the American electricity system. Westinghouse's electricity distribution system, based on
their investigators out into the field to catch these malevolent and stinky perpetrators.
“It all depends,” he said. Which is Washingtonese for “don’t hold your breath.”
I am pleased, after two years, that my complaint was dealt with (along with several million others, I suspect.) ••••• Kitchen Pantry: I sometimes like cinnamon and/or brown sugar with my oatmeal. Looked in the pantry and found neither . . . but did find a number of lonely looking other spices that were, no doubt, about 20 years old - just sitting there. In the pantry. Never taken out, never opened, never shaken onto food of any description.
I wonder how many homes have seasonings and spices that are years, if not decades, old and have never been touched. I reckon a great many. It must be a sad life, being a spice or seasoning that is neither used nor paid attention to.
I thought about writing each of the presidential candidates and asking them if they had a position on this common problem. It could just swing the nomination their way if they come up with the right answer. I know it’s at the top of my priority list. I suspect it is on yours as well, seeing as how you and me are, you know, deep thinkers and all. I’m sure Mr. Trump would
alternating current (AC), ultimately prevailed over Edison's direct current (DC).
During the Civil War, Westinghouse served as Acting Third Assistant Engineer on a Union gunboat.
Westinghouse was 19 years old when he created his first invention, the rotary steam engine. He also devised the Westinghouse Farm Engine. At age 21 he invented a "(rail) car replacer," a device to guide derailed railroad cars back onto the tracks, and a reversible frog, a device used with a railroad switch to guide trains onto one of two tracks. Westinghouse witnessed a train wreck where two engineers saw one another, but were unable to stop their trains in time using the existing brakes. Brakemen had to run from car to car, on catwalks atop the cars, applying the brakes manually on each car. This led him in 1869, at age 22, to invent a railroad braking system using compressed air. The Westinghouse system used a compressor on the locomotive, a reservoir and a special valve on each car, and a single pipe running the length of the train (with flexible connections) which both refilled the reservoirs and controlled the brakes, allowing the engineer to apply and release the brakes simultaneously on all cars. The basic system design is still in use on today’s railroads as well as heavy trucks. As a result, he founded the Westinghouse Air Brake Company. Westinghouse pursued many improvements in railway signals (which then used oil lamps). In 1881 he founded the Union Switch & Signal Company to manufacture his signaling and switching inventions. Westinghouse's interests in gas

ensure that we all had “the greatest pantry of all time! And with only spices and seasonings that would be used and not sit around and be idle.” And candidates Sanders and Clinton would squabble about who was the more progressive when it came to dealing with all the spicy details of a pantry. ••••• I think it was about 46 years ago when I, a young lad then, came to Escondido and became the manager of radio station KOWN. At that same time I met another then-young man. Ronnie Morris by name. He was and is the owner of Ronnie’s Service Center in Escondido (also known by us old timers as Ronnie’s Radiators). Ronnie has built a mighty fine and prosperous business over the years.

distribution and telephone switching led him to become interested in electrical power distribution. In 1884 he started developing his own DC lighting system and hired physicist William Stanley to work on it. In 1885, Westinghouse became aware of the new European AC systems.
The expansion of Westinghouse's AC power distribution system led him into a bitter confrontation with Edison in a feud that became known as the "War of Currents.” The “war” would end with financiers led by J. P. Morgan, pushing Edison Electric towards AC and pushing out its founder. The surviving company became known as “General Electric.”
In 1893, George Westinghouse won the bid to light the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago with alternating current, beating out a General Electric bid by $1 million. Westinghouse then developed steam turbines for maritime propulsion made practical for large vessels. With the introduction of the automobile after the turn of the century, Westinghouse went back to earlier inventions and devised a compressed air shock absorber for automobile suspen-
sions, a system still in use today.
The name “Westinghouse” became a household word during the mid-20th century up to the present, noted for kitchen appliances, washers and dryers, as well as radios and television sets. The term “Laundromat” was coined for the first automatic clothes washing machine on the market in the 1940s. George Westinghouse died on March 12, 1914, in New York City, at age 67. As a Civil War veteran, he was buried in Arlington National Cemetery.

The Music Men Chorus Begins 62nd Year - The Music Men Chorus of the Palomar Pacific Chapter of Barbershop Singers, a member of the International Barbershop Harmony Society, began its 62nd year of bringing the best in men’s four-part A Capella singing to North County on January 12th, at their annual Installation Dinner Gala at the San Marcos Senior Center, their regular meeting place. The Center’s dining room was transformed into a charming Italian Restaurant, and entertainment was provided by various quartets during the catered dinner. Originally known as the Avocado Empire Chapter, the group began in Fallbrook in 1954, but changed their name to Palomar Pacific when their weekly rehearsal/meetings were moved to this area. One member of that original group is still active in the organization; Past-President Jack Story of Fallbrook. Jack has at times been the Music Director, and has held most of the Board positions during that period. Even after all those years, he is still full of enthusiasm, and he passed the gavel to newly elected President, Al Leuthe of Escondido. Barbershop style singing is an American art form based on natural ear harmony. The fraternal organization got its start in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1938, and is now international, with chapters in many parts of the world. The local chapter rehearses every Tuesday evening in San Marcos, and performs for various organizations throughout the year. Highlights are their Annual Show and Christmas programs. Meetings are always open to men of all ages, and membership is strongly encouraged. For more information, visit www.musicmenchorus.org or phone Bill Olszanicky at 760.294.6116.

Pastor Sam Brumit Mission 316, San Marcos FORGIVENESS
I spoke recently on the topic of forgiveness. The topic is always something that moves me. You see, I believe forgiveness is a gift. It’s the crown jewel of Christianity. It’s the ultimate way of expressing love. Recently I was watching the movie “Stepmom” (yes I know – a tear jerky kind of film but still a favorite of mine). I love it when relationships eventually work out right. When love wins; when forgiveness overcomes resentment. When people do what it takes to relate and grow in love.

Mark Twain said “Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.” Forgiveness means setting someone free. Oddly, that someone is yourself. Forgiveness can change marriages, heal families and bring nations together. Forgiveness is not always easy. Forgiveness can be painful … as painful as the hurt we experienced. But if we don’t forgive, we cannot know the release and the peace that comes from the experience.
Once a follower of Jesus asked, "Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?" His response was perplexing. “I tell you, not seven times, but seventyseven times.” He could offer the challenge because He rendered forgiveness without measure. I challenge all of you (and myself) to forgive. It won’t be easy but the reward will be great. Only then can our relationships be all God intends and will we be most like Him.

The Rocky Road to Win10. Part IVConclusion
Microsoft’s (MS) major revenue source has been the sale of the Windows OS (operating systems) to PC makers at $30 to $50 a copy. In recent years PC sales have fallen as the Internet replaced “stand alone” applications and “mobiles” (smart phones/ tablets) replaced PCs. MS’ Windows running on 92% of the World’s PCs has given MS a reliable revenue stream and the inside track on associated revenue producing applications like office suites, Internet browsers and search engines. “Mobiles” now threaten MS’ traditional revenue source. Google’s “Android” OS runs on 83% of “mobiles.” “Mobile” Internet access surpassed PC Internet access in 2014 and continues to grow as PC usage shrinks. If MS can’t find a way to reverse its shrinking Internet access share, Windows and MS are in for a long slow decline. MS determined that its best chance at recovery was to attack Google’s NOTICE INVITING BIDS CIP NO. 88087, RANCHO SANTA FE ROAD ADA CURB RAMP RECONSTRUCTION PROJECT
PUBLIC NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City of San Marcos, hereinafter referred to as Agency, invites sealed bids for the above stated Project and will receive such bids in the offices of Agency (Public Works Administration Building), at 201 Mata Way, San Marcos, California 92069, up to the hour of 2:00 p.m., on Thursday, April 7, 2016, at which time they will be publicly opened in the main conference room of the Public Works Administration Building, 201 Mata Way, San Marcos, CA 92069. Bids received after the hour and date for the bid opening will not be accepted and shall be returned unopened. DESCRIPTION OF WORK The work generally consists of removal of existing curb, gutter, curb ramp and sidewalk and construction of new ADA curb ramps and associated sidewalk reconstruction per San Diego Regional Standard Drawings. LOCATION OF WORK The work to be constructed is located on Rancho Santa Fe Road from Lake Ridge Drive to Grand Avenue in the City of San Marcos, CA. TIME OF COMPLETION Time is of the essence in the performance of the Work under this Contract. All work shall be completed in every detail to the satisfaction of the Agency within FIFTY FIVE (55) WORKING DAYS after the date of commencement specified in the Notice to Proceed. Liquidated Damages shall conform to the latest edition of the Standard Specifications “Greenbook” subsection 6-9 except the specified amount shall be changed to Two Thousand FiveHundred ($2,500.00) per calendar day that the work, including punch list, is not completed beyond the specified contract time. GENERAL Copies of the Bid and Contract Documents are available for inspection at no cost to the bidder at the front counter of the Development Services Department on the first floor of City Hall, 1 Civic Center Drive, San Marcos, California 920692918.

It shall be the responsibility of the prospective bidders to download and print the bid documents for review
MS planned to attract “mobile” users by offering a single cross-platform Windows OS for mobile and PCs. Windows 8, their first attempt was poorly done and both mobile and PC sales suffered. Windows 10 is MS’ latest attempt to revive “mobile” and PC sales. Win10 offers nothing new for Win7/8 users but it has desperately needed features for MS.
Win10 gives Microsoft complete control over user PCs and Internet browsing. Win10 users can’t keep MS from updating their PC, collecting personal data or placing ads on their PC. Win10 allows Microsoft access to everything its users do on their PCs and Windows “Mobile” devices. It lets MS compile personal data to sell, or to target-market users with relevant advertising. Win 10 is also designed to facilitate access to Microsoft’s “app store” and cloud services. If everyone would adopt Win10, Microsoft could make billions selling applications, access, advertising and personal information to other entities (businesses or government). That’s why Win10 is free to anyone with Win7/8 and why the retail sale of Win7/8 Home edition is banned. Unfortunately for MS, business and home users have been slow to accept Win10. Today 52% of the World’s PCs still have Win7 and corporations continue to buy their new PCs with Window7 Professional. Only 12% of PCs have Win10. Because Win10 acceptance is so critical, MS has adopted “scorched earth” tactics in the battle to force users to accept Win10. and bid. Bidders shall also check the website for addendums which will be posted no later than 48 hours prior to the bid opening. Each addendum will include a conformation sheet indicating receipt of the addendum. This sheet must be signed and included with the bid for each addendum issued. Bids which do not include the conformation sheet(s) for each addendum, if any, may be rejected. The City of San Marcos does not warrant, represent, or guarantee the accuracy, completeness, or adequacy of information provided from any third party source.

If using Federal Express or other such service for bid submittal, the contents of the submittal must be noted on the outside of that envelope as stated above. Each bid must be accompanied by cash, a certified or cashier's check payable to the City of San Marcos, or a satisfactory bid bond executed by the bidder and an acceptable surety, in an amount equal to ten percent (10%) of the total aggregate bid amount. The successful bidder will be required to furnish and pay for performance and payment bonds acceptable to the Agency. This project is funded by a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG).

Tactics include disinformation campaigns concerning Win10 upgrades, CPU compatibility and Win7 support and security issues. Other nasties include computer crashing updates and a slowdown of the servers that provide services for Win7/8. In its fevered rush to push Win10 upgrades MS has downplayed upgrade problems that have cost trusting users billions in computer repairs. Their latest ploy is to download the 20GByte Win10 upgrade disguised as a “critical update” and then trick or hassle users into installing it. Microsoft is playing hardball with their own loyal customers because Win10 as the key to their salvation. MS works for its stockholders not for us. We users are simply an exploitable resource. New and refurbished PCs at The Computer Factory have a Win7 or Win10 option. Is
Win 10 a good OS? Should you upgrade your Win7 or 8 to it? Should you buy a new PC with Win10? Win10 is basically Win7 with fangs. XP, Vista, Win 7/8 users should have a minimal learning curve, especially if they download the free “Classic Shell” app which restores the “classic” desktop. Most industry experts see no advantage in upgrading from Win7/8. The best reason for choosing Win10 is to avoid sneak attacks by MS. Because there are four times as many Win7 as Win10 users, there is a booming business in apps designed to protect Win7 users from Win10 upgrade “guerrilla warfare.” If you don’t like your Win 8 PC, a Win10 upgrade makes sense, with Win7, not so much. With a new PC? It’s a tough decision.

Cosmetic - Ceramic (NonMetallic) Crowns - Smile Enhancements
Ceramic, Non-Metallic Crowns are the current rave for Cosmetic Smile Enhancements. Everyone wants teeth that, once restored, “Brighten Your Smile” and give you that overall “Glow” your face has begun to miss as we age and begin to wrinkle and tarnish a bit. Some of the old metal crowns caused allergic reactions and current research indicates they may be contributing to cancer formation. Metal crowns had been replaced in the mid-1960’s by porcelain jacket crowns. But by the mid-1980’s these crowns showed a 25% chance of failing after 11 years, with failure rates on posterior
teeth going much higher! Fortunately, in 1983 Horn, Simonsen and others introduced the first bonded porcelain crowns. Although these crowns didn’t fracture as often, they frequently came loose from their underlying teeth because their dental cements didn’t adhere well to dentin. Today, along with the development of newer cements, the modern day all-ceramic crowns have arrived. These new systems not only stay bonded to teeth well, they can also be categorized into two groups: those that are translucent and very natural in appearance and those that are more opaque having a higher-strength core that resist extreme chewing forces. Both are fabricated without a metal backing and therefore do not show their metal (called “shine through”) up by the gum line as their owner’s gums recede with age. There are several companies producing various formulations of these ceramics and
supplying them to the dental labs for crowns and bridges. Just to keep it simple, the opaque, stronger crowns are made from a Zirconia core and used in posterior teeth because they can withstand the stronger forces exerted in that region. The translucent, more color adjustable crowns are made from a pressured ceramic and are thus mostly used for anterior teeth. For those who have very strong bites and/or grind at night we now have a third option which allows us to “layer” porcelain onto the Zirconia based crowns resulting in stronger anterior teeth that won’t chip with their night-
In general the dentist will pick the appropriate cosmetic crown for you based on several factors including how much support is needed, whether the teeth are discolored, how much of the tooth is remaining, whether it will show when you’re speaking, eating, smiling, etc., as well as how much clearance you have with the opposing teeth, where your gum line is located, and finally, the color of your teeth. If you have an “unusual” color disposition, then the translucent crown may be the best choice!
